Happy Birthday to one of the kindest and most gentle souls on this earth – Daryl Garber!
Imagine the good fortune of a man turning 80, with his wife and every single one of his children and grandchildren happily joining in a weekend of celebration of his life and the life of the family together!
I love being part of this incredible clan.

…there you go, flitting across the night sky.
I’ve watched you take tiny, nightly steps in that westerly direction since the autumn wind blew giant oak leaves across the garden, tossing golden tomato seeds to kingdom come.
For years, when Zip required a leash and supervision as she did her 3:00am business, you were my steady winter companion – you, with your four squares and that flashy sash. Unchanging. Solid as a rock!
And though we don’t visit every single night these days, when I am out, I always look up to whisper hello.
But it’s March now.
My friend, it’s just about time for you to go.

With temps in the low 60s on Sunday, we weren’t the only people who thought it was a good day to go hang out in Annapolis. Throngs gathered at the waterfront and Ego Alley, sailboats maneuvered around each other in the harbor, and every third person was wearing shorts.

Well, actually….seen parading down the middle of the street in Chestertown.

…are so much more fun when they’re made with friends. It was cold and rainy outside, but warm and humming in the village hall. Every sort of paper, heart, tape, ribbon, marker, crayon, cut out, sticky, candy, staple, image, and sequin was set out to inspire expressions of love and appreciation.
Thank you Patti, for your unending enthusiasm for all things creative, community and artsy. We miss you, Martha and Jim!
